Fill a Bag Project
Women entering domestic violence shelters or surviving on the streets in poverty don’t usually have a nice bag they can call their own. The Zonta Club of Quaboag Valley is planning to change that reality – at least for 100 women. They are collecting new or gently-used pocketbooks as well as quantities of toiletries, make-up and personal care items to fill those bags at its meeting on February 8th at the Ludlow Country Club. Filled bags, along with cards and notes of encouragement, will be delivered to local shelters in time for Valentines Day. Drop-off centers are being set up in local communities. Thanks for any support you can provide.
